Thinking about when you travel Devon is at its busiest in the summer months and you can't rely on the British weather. Nevertheless, you can definitely put faith in having lots to do come rain or shine. The only issue most travelers face is deciding on the best way to travel. Devon and its surrounding areas are well worth the journey.

For most Britons, the most convenient way to get to Devon is to drive. For families, this may be the most cost effective, and with the region sitting between Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset linking to both the M5 and M3, the county is easily accessible from both the North or South of the country.

Regardless of the route you take whilst driving, you can guarantee to see some beautiful views, rolling hills and idyllic scenery, helping to make the journey to East Devon a pleasant part of the trip.

In addition to driving, there are many other options to travel. Devon, and its surrounding areas has great public transport links in terms of buses and trains from Devon to London, as well as the alternative option of flying in to Exeter Airport. Pre-booked train tickets and weekly travel tickets are a brilliant way of getting around on a daily basis.

Set in the heart of Devon, the airport provides access to and from over 50 destinations both inside and outside of the UK, including Manchester, Dublin and Amsterdam.

Flying into Devon may be of particular interest for those passionate about walking, surfing and spending the majority of the time on the beach or those who simply want to leave the stress of having to worry about the car behind. If this is the case, airport parking can be pre-booked in advance at major UK airports to guarantee safety and security of your vehicle whilst away.

As the tourists flock to East Devon, some locals may wish to retreat further afield to destinations such as France, Malta or Spain and with ample facilities at Exeter airport, traveling outside of the region is a simple procedure. It is literally a case of finding some cheap flights, either in advance or at the last minute, packing up the car and pre-booking your Exeter airport parking in order to save time and money at the gate. This in turn creates space in the region for the many visitors wishing to experience the delights of the East Devon region, clotted cream teas included!
